 Bolibrukh presents the negative solution of Hilbert's twentyfirst problem for linear Fuchsian systems of differential equations. Methods developed by Bolibrukh in solving this problem are then applied to the study of scalar Fuchsian equations and systems with regular singular points on the Riemann sphere. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians specializing in analytic theory of differential equations and mathematical physics. Table of Contents  Introduction
